Clothes arid Character Women visitors from America and Great Britain have frequently expres sed the opinion that it was rather a pity that Australian women follow Continental fashions so slavishly, and lose so much of theft* own individuality by dressing in this manner. "lour girls all appear to be turned out by the one dressmaker," recently remarked an American. "They wear the same colors; the cut of their clothes is the same. , There is an absurd similarity about millinery and footwear..

Self-supporting Girls' Scheme [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
Self-supporting Girls' Scheme In Australia, as elsewhere, there are numbera of girls who while not anxious to follow either professional or com mercial careers, are ever on the look out for new schemes by which they can earn a livelihood. A domesticated English girl made the discovery that many mothers needed somebody reliable to take charge of things at time of sickness or give a well-trained helping hand at holiday time, or in cases of emergency. She sent neatly typed business notes to women to whom she thought the sug gestion would appeal. These slips in dicated that she was willing to go out by the day or half-day as a holiday help or assistant in cases of sicknesa In less than three months she had worked up a good connection. She! charged 4/ a day for her services. She found one of the most pleasant duties was taking charge of children whosve mothers had many calls on their ser vices, and who were not always able to keep a nurse or governess. I It is a suggestion t!hat should a...

To suggest to lovers of the sunshine that it was an enemy to be guarded against, would very probably be re- - ceived with amazement.

DRISCOLL DEFEATS SIMPSON. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
DRISCOLL DEFEATS SIMPSON. Boyo. Driscoll, the Welsh featherweight, on January 17, at the Melbourne Stadium, gained what many regarded aa a somewhat lucky victory over Charlie Simpson, of Vic toria. The contest lasted the scheduled 20 rounds, and the decision of Ernie Fullalove, the referee, was in favor of Driscoll on points. The Welsh lad certainly deserved his success. He decisively out-pointed Simpson in the 18 rounds, but the Melbourne boy boxed so strongly in the two final terms that thoie might have been a different result had he adopted similar forcing tactics a little earlier in the bout. Driscoll, who is not related to Jim Driscoll, the noted English boxer, as is gener ally believed here,has been rather unfortunate since he came to Australia nearly a year ago. He met Simpson at the Sydney Stadium in April last, and defeated the Victorian in 1&lt; rounds. Driscoll then contracted rheumatism, and was some months working it out of his system. His second contest in the ...

M'COY SCORES VICTORY. MATT WELLS BREAKS UP. WEIGHT FORFEIT CLAIMED. Heb. M'Coy, the crack Victor an light weight, scored the most important victory of hie boxing career at tlie Sydney Stadium on January 17, when he defeated Matt Wells in brilliant fashion. It was a remarkable contest all through, for the reason that M'Coy outboxed Wells in 1G out of 20 rounds, and also for the fact that Wells showed himself to be much more of a boxer than he had done before. The Englishman's condition, however, was not equal to the strain, and he broke up after the twelfth round. There could be little cause for wonderment in that, as li? had taken off 181b. weight in a fortn'ght in his endeavor to get down to the 'stipulated limit of 9.10. He reduced himself to with n a few ounces of that:.weight, but, as he could not quite make It, M'Coy's party at once claimed the £200 forfeit agreed upon. Tfcis claim caused much haggling in the afternoon and early part of the evening, ana,, as neither side would ...
